Rune: Ragnarok is an action RPG released for PC. This is a sequel to Rune, a game that launched in the year 2000, and just like that title developed by Human Head, the studio that also created such projects as: Prey and Dead Man’s Hand.
Rune: Ragnarok takes the player to a fantasy realm inspired by the Norse mythology. The game is set seven years into Ragnarok, that is the Vikings’ vision of the apocalypse. Despite many battles and disasters, there seems to be no end to gods inflicting humans, therefore, the mankind decides to take the matter into their own hands and put an end to the slaughter. This, however, is not easy, because that goal can only be achieved by slaying at least several gods of the Nordic Pantheon.
While the first Rune was a straightforward action game with linear maps, Rune: Ragnarok for PC is a an open world sandbox RPG. When starting the game you choose to side with one of several gods. That choice determines what specialties will be open before you. While playing you get to explore the world, complete missions, talk to non-player characters and develop your hero’s skills.
The developer has prepared a large variety of missions. In the game you can raid enemy settlements, fight the dead, sail across the sea toward new lands and craft ever more powerful gear.
However, the core of gameplay is combat. The developer prepared an extensive and highly brutal combat system with much focus on action, which lets you perform a variety of strikes and attacks. Using that you can fight all sorts of enemies: both human opponents and monsters.
